how important is the delegate mass, this year? >> donald trump could establish himself as the front-runner, not only in the polls we see every day, but, in the delegate count. i think after tonight, you'll see a lot of candidates monitoring the delegate count and doing the map between the states and map out a path for victory to the nomination. >> john: marco rubio leads zero of the polls, does he have to finish second or win one. >> a few second place finishes would be nice. i don't think there will be a lot of pressure on him if he doesn't win any tonight. a lot of his potential will be with john kasich. march 15, florida and ohio and all the face the same challenge ted cruz is facing, if they can't win their home state can they bring home the general election in november. >> ryan: the other side of the aisle. the democratic map. a different race, talking the same key states and texas jumps out with 222. but hillary clinton is dominating texas. dominated a lot and bernie sanders said, i can win in minnesota and colorado.
>> unlike the republican candidates, where they probably see someone dominating, if bernie sanders has a bad night you will see calls for him to get out. he needs to win vermont and minnesota and colorado. and potential other ones and if he doesn't win at least a couple, he needs to be a close second, in play of them, because hillary clinton will make a big jump in the delegate count tonight. >> ryan: she has surged this last week. i love seeing the smile on your face, super tuesday, looking forward to the results tonight. john? >> john: all right, 8:09 here on "good day orlando." also, several candidates are spending some time here in florida on super tuesday. donald trump is going to be in palm beach and marco rubio hosting an event in miami and hillary clinton is going to be in miami. and, keep it right here on fox 35 for all of your super tuesday action. 5:00, this evening we'll take you live to the trump and marco rubio rallies and then our on-line coverage begins at 7:00 p.m. on facebook. and at 10:00, a team of

earlier you put them on the bus the better. the study found that uc santa barbara looked at 14,000 kindergartners and found riding the bus to school increases a child's attendance rate by 20%. now, previous research already shows missing school can cause kids to have lower grades. researchers say the bus helps get kids to school because it is on a set minute-by-minute schedule. and your kids can't go, mom, i have a stomachache! i need to stay home! >> john: they coax mom or dad out of taking them to school in the 10 minutes it takes to get there. >> amy: my kids have never ridden the school bus to school. >> luanne: never? >> amy: i worry about the stuff on the school bus, bad language and bullying. maybe i'm being overprotective. >> luanne: you worry boughs --

cool or cold as we have seen since last weekend and next front marches toward us and the guy gets in here and we'll mix the rain chances from the forecast because high pressure is a dominant force right now. and, you can see it building in over the eastern shoreline, back out toward the state, and absorbing a lot of the energy associated with the front. actually the clockwise flow around the high, kind of keeping it a little more to the north there and allowing all of the energy to stream toward d.c. and the mid-atlantic states, and that is where that will wind up. for us launch time at the cape canaveral air force station, here we go, try number 3 or 4 and the falcon 9 heading into the heavens with the communication satellite, we hope spacex gets it off the ground, launch time 6:35. 70s at launch time in the vicinity of the cape and rain chance is zero. like today, leesburg, 80 titusville and vero beach and indian river county, 80 and melbourne and palm bay the upper 70s.

several hours. again, one southbound lane is back open, but is still moving very slowly, you can see by all of those reds there, hopping over to lake county, we do have an incident of u.s. 27, a crash here, being called -- a serious accident that shut down one southbound lane there. time now, for your pump patrol, saving you money, regular gas is just $1.57 at the speedway on east cimarron boulevard and wilshire boulevard, in casselberry. you can always find gas saving tips on our web site, at www.fox35orlando.com. john and amy, back to you. >> john: we know a lack of sleep causes you to make bad food choices, now we know the cause and effect of that, coming up the fox medical team explains how your poor nighttime habits, sleeping habits can lead to poor
we've all known this but now there are numbers to prove it? >> good morning, the subject that is near and dear to our hearts, i know. it turns out the lack of sleep, it increases the hunger hormone and decreases another hormone and also activates something, called the endocavanoid syndrome, it sounds like marijuana, right? the reward and munchies center and they found in this study is individuals who only got four-and-a-half hours of sleep, compared them later on and let them get 8-and-a-half hours of sleep, turned out that the hormone peaked later when they got less sleep and peaked at 2:00 and lasted until 9:00. normally, when you get enough sleep, it peaks around 12:30 and you are less hungry in the evening and so when they gave the people the ability to eat anything they wanted in the
less sleep and ate about 300 more calories. two times the amount of fat and if you do the math and don't get as much sleep, you will burn a little more calories and 70 calories an hour -- i'm sorry, 17 calories an hour and maybe 70 calories and they consumed more than 300. and definitely overcompensated for that core deficit. >> we talked about this, people who worked shift work, we put us in that shift work. when your body starts shutting down because you are so tired, it seems the first thing you want is sugar and, we all know that adds up and i mean, really, like a drug, you are take anything to keep your body going, aren't you? >> absolutely. i know exactly what you are talking about. we talked about the m and ms, the craving in the afternoon. i think by knowing this, and understanding what your body is doing and how it is really tricking you a bit, it may help us kind of overcome that and
is it really going to make me, you know, more wakeful and it is not. all it will do is increase your risk of obesity, because we know that that lack of sleep correlates with increasing weight. so, it is one way to stop it but, what is so interesting, drug being developed that blocked the reward center in the brain, and it never got to market because it caused an increase of suicidal thoughts and suicide and depression. so you can't block it. so we have to live with it and we have to know it is there and what it is doing to us. >> john: being aware and doesn't help the video we are showing. you can't see it. man the food we are showing. >> no, i can't. >> john: put us over the edge, thanks, much. >> my gosh! >> john: talk to you soon. >> thank you. >> john: did you see those doughnuts? gosh. >> amy: i know. a problem. >> john: still to come, no cell phones on the beach. >> amy: one group is asking you to keep them in your pocket if you are walking on the shore right at sunset. or at night.

but now in the new age where everyone has a cell phone and wants to dom everything, there are a lot of chances over someone snapping a nighttime picture and not realizing the damage they can do. from today, march 1st until the end of october, thousands of sea turtles will land on florida beaches to lay their eggs and there are a few ways to help protect the threatened and en daneringed an -- endangered animals. stay far away if you spot one and turn off lights near or on the beach. if you see any holes, big or small that were made in the sand earlier in the day, fill them so they don't fall in when they try to get back to the water and of course, no flash photography. on new smyrna beach, gina benitez, fox 35 news. >> john: music from around the world today. >> amy: friday musician from india, pakistan and the u.s. are coming together to create a one of a kind sound. fox 35's david martin is giving us a preview of that, joining us at the atlantic center for the arts in new smyrna beach. hey there.
